    Great tips! Unfortunately, I’m not that good with visualization unless I’m in the proper setting/environment. For example, it really helps to practice it at the end of your sleep routine, when you’re in bed with your eyes closed and seeking to drop off. Conjuring up relaxing images can also be helped by a variety of audio tools found free online, such as environmental soundtracks! One final thing that helped me destress this winter was going on a 20 minute walk/jog after work instead of jumping straight in my car to drive back home. I stopped worrying about not being physically active and the walk actually gave me an energy push to study more in the evening, as often I don’t because I say I feel “too tired” but in reality it’s just procrastination that adds to my stress. So, to conclude these two simple things to do REALLY help!
